The Federal Government has warned those planning a fresh protest at Lekki Toll Gate to shelve their plans as violent protests will not be tolerated.

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, who gave the warning while addressing journalists on Thursday, in Abuja, said every Nigerian has the freedom to protest but violence in the name of protests will not be condoned.

Mohammed said based on Intelligence there are high chances that the protest which is planned to take place on February 13, 2021, at the Lekki Toll Gate will be hijacked by hoodlums.

“Some #EndSARS proponents have given notice of their plan to return to Lekki Tollgate. They want to return there on Saturday, February 13, this year.

“The #OccupyLekkiTollgate flyers have been circulating online with the proponents threatening that Lagos will burn again.

“Let me be clear, while peaceful protests are constitutional rights of Nigerians, violent protests are not.

“At this time, the chances that any peaceful protest will be hijacked are very high. Any resort to violence in the name of #EndSARS will not be tolerated this time,” the Minister said. Channeltv
